High-Performance Addressing (HPA)

Definition - What does High-Performance Addressing (HPA) mean?

High performance addressing (HPA) is a display technology used in LCD computer monitors and screens. It was developed by Hitachi to be used on low-end laptop and portable computers. HPA uses passive-matrix display technology to build display screens.

Techopedia explains High-Performance Addressing (HPA)

HPA was primarily designed to provide better image/screen display than the traditional LCD display systems. HPA screens are known to have better contrast and a faster response rate. An HPA-powered LCD screen can display up to 16 million colors. It analyzes each incoming video signal received from the computer and refreshes it with the highest frequency possible, ensuring better display. Although an HPA passive matrix display system doesn’t provide a better display than the active-matrix display, it is cheaper thanks to its internal circuitry architecture.
